I know reviewers would cry about Uncharted 2 having no multiplayer, but now since it has one, AAA confirmed.
lol i can just see it now: "Having Multi-player in the game somehow makes the Single player campaign less important and less fun, there is simply too much variety of gameplay to play through, 7.5" lol wouldn't surprise me, they will always find something to pick at. Either way, Uncharted 2 was already at the top of my list of games this year and now its gone even higher, CANT WAIT!!! (i also think Insomniac will help Naughty Dog with the online so im sure it will turn out to be as great as R2/R1 lag-free online)
Great for NA users, but does anyone know if we in the UK/EU will get a similar offer, or will the codes be distributed via Eurogamer?
I went to gamestop yesterday to pre-order infamous and he told me they'd be having the codes for the early demo, so im like what about the ability i read id get here that it talks about online, he said "you get both, but only while supplies last and we have no idea when they're coming or how many we'll get". It good and it sucks at the same time. This uncharted thing is a new thing altogether. Imagine, one pre-order and you get, gigawatt blades, early infamous demo, AND Uncharted 2 demo/multi-player beta test code? Would be awesome.
BTW Uncharted 2 having multiplayer, and there being a beta test with inFamous were the "Major Uncharted 2 Announcements" we were talking about earlier this week. http://playstationlifestyle...
Ye, except someone broke the rules and it got leaked early, i bet it makes you feel like ignoring what Sony say and just announcing everything you know beforehand lol. I hope Sony follow up on all these leaks otherwise there is not point in having all of these contracts etc.
i think the beta is going to be on the disk or a code in the retail box
It's a voucher code. That is a definite.
I am very curios to see if it's story related at all. Honestly I wouldn't mind playing Uncharted Multiplayer at all even if it's tacked on. It would be way cooler if they worked some elements of the single player game into the multiplayer somehow.
As long as they don't lose sight of what made the original great, they can add anything they want
the best I can hope for at this point is that the multiplayer is being handled by a different team. Naughty Dog excel at single player, and I dont want anything to be hampering development on single player.
Well, there was some chatter about Insomniac, and Guerrilla meeting with Naughty Dog recently. Maybe they were getting some tips/advice on multiplayer. If they can even come close to the MP experience that Insomniac, or Guerrilla has given us, then Uncharted 2 MP = Hell Yeah.
Insomniac are like the experts for online lol, they helped GG with K2 online and im sure they will help Naughty-dog (since i remember reading somewhere them 2 companies work quite closely). I hope Insomniac gets help also, they could have the perfect Single player campaign with the help of GG or ND! and also help with graphics improvement.
Hopefully Qore subscribers get it too. There are too many games coming out this year, so I am going to rent Infamous.
reviewers will deduct points from uncharted 2 because its exclusive to the ps3 and give the graphics ratings less than halo3 and gears even though uncharted 2 has the best graphics . they cant complain about online multiplayer anymore so they'll find ridiculous things to complain about . ps. the talon stands for talented
I'll buy Uncharted 2 but not inFamous.
I think me and you are of the very few in the ps3 crowd who aren't excited about infamous. Like you, I'll be buying Uncharted 2 on the first day, infamous probably not.
There's no Best Buy where I'm living now so this is good news for me.
I hope the multiplayer beta is worldwide as well. Sony show some love to EU gamers.:(
Great news once again Sev. I am an avid reader of your site, and this added to your teaser from a couple days back is really is awesome and helpful info. Being a large fan of both inFAMOUS and Uncharted, I was concerned other stores copies wouldn't have the code besides Best Buy. I've already had my inFAMOUS pre-order placed for a while at a local EB/Gamestop (mainly for the Blades bonus DLC), and didn't want to end up missing out on this great chance to see how Naughty Dog implements this aspect of their game. I personally don't see this detracting at all from the SP portion of the game, and feel that both the online MP and offline SP will offer a truly epic gaming experience, just as the original Uncharted was. I am still interested to find out if the Co-op rumors turn out to be true as well. That would be quite the experience if they could manage co-op, multiplayer, and a solid amazing single player game. I don't expect anything from that, but it would be a very interesting and potentially awesome addition. Thanks again for the info Sev.
The beta code comes with just buying the game, correct? Or am I gonna have to go pre-order Infamous to get one?
I'm buying Uncharted 2 day one regardless of Multiplayer or not... I don't mean this in a bad way, but I'll probably give my Uncharted 2 Beta Code away when I get it with my pre-ordered copy of InFamous. I'm not saying I don't care about the MP mode in Uncharted 2 because I do, it's just that I'm buying Uncharted 2 for the Single Player experience, and I'm in no hurry to play the Multiplayer portion of it because I can wait for it. Right now I'm more interested in how in the world Uncharted 2 multiplayer will even work, but I guess Naughty Dog will reveal all that at E3! Defiantly can't wait for it.
Hey, If you're gonna give your code away, I could use one. I know it's a long shot lol, but I'm in the UK and it's 99% chance that we won't get this offer, so won't have a chance to play uncharted 2 MP. You know what SCEE are like. Anyway, if you're feeling generous, reply and I'll give you my PSN ID etc. Thanks
Glad to hear it isn’t only available at Best Buy as I’m preordering inFamous at GameStop. However, I’m not too sure how I feel about Uncharted 2 having multiplayer. I would much rather have the time and resources be spent on adding an additional hour or two to the single player campaign. I guess they felt like they had to add it due to reviewers and some vocal gamers that can’t just enjoy a great game experience on their own. Does it change the fact that I will preorder the game? Hell no, as I am sure it will still be amazing and I’m sure ND will make a solid multiplayer experience as well, but I just don’t think Uncharted needed a multiplayer mode.
Totally unexpected bonus added onto my already pre-ordered inFamous game. At least Naughty Dog is kicking off this beta real early before release to test out how it works.
Anyone know yet if the code voucher is IN the box with inFAMOUS or if you get it just with getting the game? If I don't have to buy inFAMOUS I won't, because I could ask a Gamestop buddy to just give me the voucher for free lol.
I got a code with my pre-order with EB Games ... hopefully I can get the multiplayer beta voucher when I pick up inFamous.
